Verdict on NZ Charity Compliance


New Zealand’s Charity Services is pleased with the compliance rates after the second full year or reporting under the new standards, with overall adoption improving from 65% to 82% – which suggests that they are very much still in the “educate and encourage” mode.

Tier 1 and 2 achieved 100% compliance and Tier 3 was close behind with 98%. It’s the under-resourced Tier 4 charities who have the lowest compliance rates (though that’s up from 56% to 72%).

There’s no sign of a big stick being waved about yet. Still, they’re not entirely satisfied.

It’s a work in progress with continuous amendments being rolled out adjusting the process to make it more transparent and hopefully easier on charities.
